    Hello. I Might have to get rid of a rooster [​IMG] please help me decide who


    First contestant Mereece

    My name is Mereece, I am a OEGB. I love myself, and I am handsome. You should pick me because I know how to treat the ladies right. Im not rough when "doing my job".I love to dance. Never challenge my flock keeper. Mind my own buisness. And im currently snuggling with the flock keeper, in her jacket (no joke [​IMG] ) I dont have spurs,just little nubs.

    Hello. My name is Edward. Im a EE, and a big boy!. I Am a lover To the hens. I dance for them, and pick them treats, plus when there in the nesting boxes,ill lay next to them and talk to them, and make a nest of the coop floor for them, but they reject it. I like to flap my wings at the flock keeper, but NEVER attack her, I do enjoy bocking at her! she doesnt mind.

    Don't the boys get along? They both sound charming. How many girls do you have? I usually keep 2 roos with about 25 hens.

    Well, lucky you! [​IMG] Both of your boys sound like very nice respectful roosters.
    Are they currently residing together in the same pen / fenced area? I ask because sometimes a roosters personality can change a bit when he becomes the solo roo... maybe you should keep them both [​IMG] to keep the peace.
    Also, how old are they... if they are still pretty young it may be too soon to make a good personality judgment.
    Good luck to you!!!
